The Government of Kenya established the Interim Independent Electoral Commission (IIEC) following recommendations by the Independent Review Commission of the 2007 Post-Elections (IREC) and subsequent enactment of the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Act No. 10 of 2008.
It replaced the defunct Electoral Commission of Kenya which was accused of mismanaging the 2007 parliamentary and presidential elections resulting in the loss of over 1000 lives and displacement of hundreds of thousands of people.

·         Facilitation of the observation, monitoring and evaluation of referenda;
·         Promotion of voter education and a culture of democracy;
·         Settlement of minor electoral disputes during an election as may be provided for by law.
